was hit harder than at any time since pearl harbor. but without blaming george w. bush for failing to act sufficiently to that warning an of august 6th, 2001, should anyone blame this president and his people for acting in time this time? joining me tonight from cairo, nbc news chief foreign correspondent richard engel and with us from new york, msnbc terrorist analyst evan kohlmann. nbc is reporting now the interrogation behind the worldwide terrorist alert this week was an intercepted communication between the leader an of al qaeda in the arabian peninsula and the leader of al qaeda central over in pakistan. the man who succeeded osama bin laden, ayman al zawahiri. the two men reportedly agreed that they wanted to do something big, timed to the end of the muslim holy month of ramadan which is right now. and that's what led the united states to close 19 embassies. there they are on the map and consulates in the mideast and africa. there's still a lot that remains unknown including which target. over the weekend, one thing clear from every lawmaker and official with knowledge of the attac
power. that raw capacity to this fight we want the government to win against terrorists. george w. bush encapsulated this perfectly when the first wiretapping was reported in 2005 when he basically said, you know what, if you're not al qaeda, you've got nothing to worry about. this sort of thing cuts the other direction too, though. what if the american people haven't much cared about or maybe have even approved of something the government was doing because we thought it was for fighting terrorism but instead it's not. something that everybody -- maybe a little squeamish about but basically okay with because it's supposedly only for use against bad guys in foreign countries. guys like this, right? turns out instead it's being used by local american cops for regular old crime for stuff done by americans that has nothing to do with wacky religious ideology. what if powers of the u.s. government that had some agent somewhere listening into this conversation with the threats to the u.s. embassies. what if that same power has the same agents also listening in on your phone calls. finding out
. former president george w. bush is recovering at a dallas hospital from a heart procedure he underwent this morning after doctors discovered a blocked artery during his annual physical. the operation successfully placed a stent in the artery to open the blockage. the former president says he is in high spirits and will return to his normal schedule on thursday. we'll continue to monitor the story as it develops. >>> turning now to president obama's policy push, he is just a few hours from touching down in phoenix where he'll highlight positive gains made in the state's housing market. the southwest stopover is part of the president's recent campaign to shift focus back to the nation's economy but sunny weather and signs of a recovery are not all that awaits him in the canyon of of the unknown. president obama will once again be greeted on the tarmac by arizona governor and self-proclaimed scorpion eater jan brewer, the same jan brewer who last year greeted the president with a now-infamous finger wag. in addition to her predilection of insects in the early hour, she's a prime example o
as well. >>> moving on, president obama george w. bush is recovering in a dallas hospital after a health scare. the former president had a stint surgically placed this morning to clear a blocked artery in his heart. the blockage was discovered yesterday during the 67-year-old's annual physical. a statement released by his office says, president bush is in high spirit, eager to return home tomorrow and resume his normal schedule on thursday. joining me now, nbc news chief medical editor dr. nancy snyderman. nancy, this sounds like good news from the president's office. you know, when we see him as a physical guy, always out, always jogging, you know, 67-year-old, but by all appearances over the years in great health, how does something like this happen? >> well, it happens, tamron, because we always pay the piper for how we've lived our lives formerly. something was found on his routine physical, whether it was an ekg change or whether he had some pain or discomfort in his jaw or his chest. something made the doctors realize he had a blockage of one of his arteries and they wanted to put
saw that during the financial crisis when the choice of george w. bush, whose economic record was maligned by democrats for quite a long time, turned out to be a vital partner with president obama in trying to stop the financial crisis and get the recovery going. so we are not making too big a deal of it. the only thing that may be out of proportion is the speculation to knowledge ratio, because it's a very small number of people, the president and a few people very close to him who really know his thinking, although i talked to a couple of people on the larger obama team today who continue to think that the odds are pretty strong that the president will in fact pick larry summers despite this flak. >> can i ask you, john, why -- why larry summers? if you look at his record, he blocked the regulation of derivatives when he was serving with president clinton. he advocated an appeal of glass-steagall, he pushed for a smaller stimulus in 2009 and resigned from harvard over sexist comments questioning women's aptitude in math and science. you compare that to janet yellin who warne
® love the air. >>> when the financial crisis happened at the end of the george w. bush presidency and the economy went down the toilet across country, there were a million manifestations that were material, for individual families, people who lost their jobs, us as a country. in 2008, our economic growth rate was negative 8.3%. that was the negative growth rate that quarter for the whole country. one of the weirdly unsettling manifestations of that very dark time in our recent history was when some towns and some counties and some states decided they had to unpave themselves. do you remember this when we decided that the united states of america could no longer afford paved roads? 38 counties in michigan started grinding their paved roads, their asphalt roads into gravel because they could not afford to keep them paved. in south dakota, 100 miles of asphalt road ground into gravel. in ohio, they couldn't afford to grind down their roads. ohio counties made an official decision to let their paved streets erode into unpaved streets. this started happening in 2009 when the economy wa
actually with an american journalist calling him a traitor, and then cuts to george w. bush awarding him the presidential medal of freedom. so talk about our transition of a society and how we view him. >> hopefully if the film is doing its job, that's what it's about. once he refuses induction, he doesn't change, so to him being vilified by david suskind to get the medal of freedom from president bush is because we changed. so that's for me is what the film is about, our transformation, and how muhammad ali, being in the cross hairs of the black freedom struggle and the antichef vietnam movement, not because he was a professional activist. he does not insert himself to be an anti-war leader. that role was really thrust upon him, you know, and stuck to his principles, made a moral stand. he assumed he was going to prison. that's a real hard thing for people to remember now. had he was sentenced to five years in prison, that's what he thought was going to happen. and, you know, it takes -- took i believe tremendous, incredible courage, hopefully on an inspiring level to young people now,
